'We didn't lose': Man United manager in denial after Tottenham humiliation

Former Tottenham striker Gary Lineker hailed the club's goalscorers in their big win over Manchester United.

Here's how to watch Manchester United vs. Tottenham online.

Jose Mourinho and Ed Woodward's relationship has deteriorated due to a disagreement over Anthony Martial, with the attacker believing he was dropped by his manager due to their ongoing row.

"Do you know what this means?" a visibly upset Mourinho, holding up three fingers in a way that can be interpreted as an obscene gesture in England, rhetorically asked one journalist.

Spurs, who didn't sign a single player in the summer, have so far bagged back-to-back wins over Newcastle and Fulham, and should they topple the Red Devils, they'll accumulate three top-flight wins out of three at the start of a campaign for the first time in nine years.


He then got up and left the room, repeating: "Respect, respect, respect".

He lasted just two years at Inter, three at Real Madrid and two in his second stint at Chelsea, and now he looks set to leave United whenever he and the board get sick of each other this season.

Nemanja Matic was one of six United alterations on Monday, with MUTV confirming the defensive midfielder would form part of a back three.

He forced Hugo Lloris into the first save of the match with a low, 20-yard effort and clipped another long-range effort wide early in the second half.

Kane climbed above Jones from a 52nd-minute corner to expertly direct a header over David de Gea and underneath the crossbar - his first goal on five trips to Old Trafford.


Perhaps the performance for the media was meant to show his defiance in the face of two defeats from the opening three games of the season. Moura has been superb throughout.

"By the strategic point of view, we didn't lose", Mourinho began.

He praised United fans for their attitude at the end of the game, saying "all our fans don't read papers, all our fans don't watch television, all our fans are more intelligent than that and answered in an incredible way".

"I don't think its normal for a team to lose a game at home and for supporters to react [like that]", he said.
